    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

  1. JJATL added a post in a topic Kelly Alexander May Soon Have Exclusives!!   

    I absolutely love her interviews.  I feel like she's one of us and asks exactly what we really want to know.  Every time a new one comes out, I hang on to every word.  That last one with Jimmy about the one year anniversary of Unbreakable, and the ones with Tina are amazing.

  2. JJATL added a post in a topic The "If" dance breakdown   

    Literally nothing discussed on a musical artist's message board is "that deep." However, since that's what we do here, and since that dance moment is arguably the most iconic in her entire career, I believe it's worth a small discussion.  That better for you?

    The "If" dance breakdown
    Ive noticed the last few tours that Janet never does the cool first part of the If dance breakdown with the other dancers.  She just stands in place slinging her head up and down.  I wonder why?  It drives me crazy! Hahaha

  4. JJATL added a post in a topic Best album to get first as an intro to Janet?   

    Design of a Decade.  It's her hits throughout her most successful years. Then you ease them into individual albums and their themes.

  5. JJATL added a post in a topic Hold Up...Did Ya'll Know Paula Abdul is touring? in 2017?   

    Back in '89, '90 and '91, she and Janet were the two big rivals, in my opinion.  I was in J's corner, and I always wanted her to beat Paula at everything.  My friends and I would argue over who was better.  Looking back now, obviously Janet's work was MUCH more groundbreaking and the music was better quality.  At the time, though, I did really love Paula deep down - totally fun and could dance up a damn storm.

    Good for her, with her back troubles over the years.  Glad she's at it.  Her choreography is dated and a little lame, but she still doing her thing (even if heavily auto-tuned or totally lip syncing).

    oh it DEFINITELY did. Hahahaha. I honestly think she detests Janet, and always has, because she was jealous that she couldn't compete with her performance abilities.  
    Female celebs like Madonna are why people are always trying to put women against each other.  It's a shame.

    No thanks to this song.  Reminds me of something JD would have produced.

  11. JJATL added a post in a topic Billboard: The 100 Greatest Pop Songs of 1997   

    I was 18 and had just moved to college.  I was already a super fan, though (had been since I was 10 or 11), so that's why I was kind of felt let down at first.  I do still remember rushing out and buying TVR, opening up the booklet for the first time as "The Velvet Rope" track started playing.  I instantly fell in love with the entire project - the music ("sonic bed" as Jimmy Jam put it), the images, the message, the groove.  But I still skipped GTIG for a while. LOL

    I remember not appreciating this song when it first came out.  I guess I was just wanting that banging single from Janet.  However, over the years it became one of my favorites.  Those muted chords at the beginning and throughout, the beat, there's just so many understated layers to its production.  Love.

  14. JJATL added a post in a topic Which Song And Album of Janet's Has the Most Cultural Significance   

    Control was quite a breakthrough into the music industry and was Janet's personal announcement to the pop world that she had arrived.  But Rhythm Nation, the album and the song, transcended just being great pop / R&B / dance music, and went to another level of "cultural significance" because of the message, the hard-hitting production and the ground-breaking choreography, which still exists today on a plane all its own.  No other dance artist since has attempted to touch it.  MTV had the RN "mini-movie" on repeat for what seemed like 2 or 3 years.
